I can't say enough good things about this hostel. I arrived early in the morning after a very difficult train ride with a dead cell phone. Although I was not able to check in to my room yet, the friendly reception staff directed me to a locked luggage storage room, an area where I could charge my phone and relax,... More

The only good thing about this hostel was the location. I have to admit that the location was just great. You can basically walk everywhere if you want. We only used subway once. But that´s all about it. Our room was mixed dorm for six persons. The room was so dirty!! It seemed that they hand´t cleaned it up for... More

This hostel was very much like staying in a low budget hotel - in a goo way! Spacious, spotlessly clean rooms. Plenty of showers on each floor so no queueing in the morning. The reception desk was very helpful. Rather odd system for Wifi, whereby a code was required for each individual device, which was a little irritating but nothing... More

The room (6-beds) is big, beds are ok and there are good lockers to use (bring a padlock). We received towels at reception and could use the luggage room before check-in and after check-out. The bathrooms for this type of room had no privacy. In the shower room, there were 5 showers, divided by transparent glass and curtains that didn't... More

It was a nice, clean hostel close to the metro and to the important sights of Berlin. Staff was very friendly and helpful. All in all it was a really nice experience and made our stay in Berlin even better.

Good location, 3 minutes from U Bahn station. 15 minutes to Bradenburger Tor (by walking). Many of bike rentals around (if you prefer biking than train). The lobby was really cozy. Breakfast all you can eat only for 4.9 euro. Free map on the desk. I stayed in 4 bed-room. The bed is okay but it's quite hot so I... More

4 friends and I stayed here for 5 nights and I cannot recommend this hostel enough. Nice, cheap and the location is excellent for getting around quickly. Some people here must have had some bad experiences with individual staff members because everyone we spoke to was really helpful and polite. A couple of staff went above and beyond to help... More

I have stayed at many hostels but never experienced such an unpleasant stay before. The service is as unfriendly as can be. I can just recommend everyone to stick to the "houserules" that were never shown or mentioned to us, otherwise you might end up with paying fees of €80 or more. Apart from that it smells awkwardly on every... More
